Let me start by saying no bashing please....so my SO does no have a job neither do I we both are full time students him during the day me at night we stay with my family. as far as finances go he gets 250 a month on back child suport so thats how we get diapers and such. Well his grandfather is well off and has told him he will help us with a house tomorrow we have a meeting with them tomorrow about this. My question is would you take a house or not?

If he buys you the house, how are you going to afford electric, water/sewer, garbage, heat, food taxes? Or will he be helping with bills as well?

I'd take the help but you're going to have to pay utilities somehow...

I'd hear him out and see if it was a situation that we could make work.

Not if we couldn't afford to support ourselves.  It's very generous of him to offer to help you all out like that, but personally, i'd feel like i was completely mooching off of him.  I wouldnt do it until at least one of us had a job to support ourselves and our kid.

So wait a sec........................you and he are not married. You have kids from another guy/ marriage. What does it mean he gets 'back support' of 250 bucks a month............and for diapers? So you have a kid with him? And you both are in school? Neither work? And houses are so expensive! Really. Put a ring on it. Finish school. Marry. And no more kids!
And for granddad.....................well IDK...............in the end you always owe.
